Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OIL CONDITION MONITORING
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ SERVANT À SURVEILLER L'ÉTAT DE L'HUILE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a microfluidic system for monitoring the condition of lubricating oil. The microfluidic system comprises a microfluidic device with at least one microchannel (40) configured to allow a sample of lubricating oil (52a) to pass therethrough as a laminar flow. The device has at least one separating device (41) configured to selectively separate at least one component (54b) from the lubricating oil (52a) in the fluid flow. The microfluidic system also comprises a detector device (20, 22) configured to detect the presence and/or measure at least one property of the at least one component passing through the microfluidic device after separation in the microchannel (40).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système microfluidique servant à surveiller l'état de l'huile de lubrification. Le système microfluidique comprend un dispositif microfluidique ayant au moins un microcanal (40) configuré pour permettre à un échantillon d'huile de lubrification (52a) de passer au travers de celui-ci sous la forme d'un écoulement laminaire. Le dispositif a au moins un dispositif de séparation (41) configuré pour séparer de manière sélective au moins un composant (54b) de l'huile de lubrification (52a) dans le flux de fluide. Le système microfluidique comprend également un dispositif de détection (20, 22) configuré pour détecter la présence et/ou mesurer au moins une propriété de l'au moins un composant traversant le dispositif microfluidique après la séparation dans le microcanal (40).
